Simple, clear and well presented concepts.

#SocialMedia Tools #Oprah Style Favorite Things: Prepare To Scream Like a Girl

#SocialMedia Tools #Oprah Style Favorite Things: Prepare To Scream Like a Girl | SM | Scoop.it

Social Media is evolving every day, or maybe even every minute of every day. It seems that new platforms are popping up all the time, so much so that it can actually be a tad overwhelming to say the least. I find that I am constantly tweaking the platforms that I use and honestly it has been an ongoing process. However I am so excited to say that I have found an amazing cocktail of social media tools recently that has really been working wonderfully for me.

 

Traditional Social Media allows an amazing avenue to share content. I consider it the vehicle to drive the content and can be a powerful thing if used properly. These channels are used to drive content based on particular demographics and I use each channel differently. The cocktail that I have compiled of traditional social media and the following channels has created the ultimate rocking social media tool kit for me!...

Twitter 101: 55 Tips to Get Retweeted on Twitter | SM | Scoop.it

Retweets, you have heard about them, you know what they are but you aren’t gettin’ them.


For some reason you just can’t seem to get the engagement you are seeking, desiring and yearning for in social media and Twitter.

 

You may be new to Twitter and simply don’t know what the heck you are doing, how to get a retweet or why the retweets even matter. This post won’t teach you what Twitter is but provides good tips for tweetable content which you need regardless if you know what you’re doing or not (joking).

 

Or you may be a Twitter and social media veteran who just wants to boost your ego, increase your Klout score or simply show off for Grandpa this weekend how popular you are on the social waves?...
